That Girl Can Sing
On the Trail With Gale
You know it's campaign season when perennial candidate Jennifer Gale leads a room of Realtors in a rendition of "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'." Gale, after a brief hiatus to run for council in Dallas, is back in Austin and on the ballot to fill Place 4, currently held by outgoing Mayor Pro Tem Betty Dunkerley. At a council forum held by the Real Estate Council of Austin, Gale not only played song lead but also promised to field a National Football League franchise for Austin. So far, Gale, a transgender, homeless former Marine, has 108 friends on her MySpace page, which touts her run for mayor and notes that her favorite films include Tootsie and Mrs. Doubtfire.
